The review of the disc on Blu-ray.com calls it "a pressed MOD (Manufactured on Demand) disc". What the hell is that? I thought a disc could either be pressed or MOD. How can it be both? What do they do, gear up the pressing plant to stamp out one disc?

It is my understanding & 100% happy to be told I am wrong, but these "limited" runs are added to regular release runs of blu rays, in "theory" it is MOD as it is not a regular run but in the case of BR's they are factory pressed discs & not on the DVD-R or Blu Ray -R pattern.

Again I may not be correct & I am trying to locate the article where I read this to post a link & again I MAY BE WRONG, but I think it was something stated by Warner Archive in one of their Q & A on line sessions?

Apologies for the scatty answer but I hope it may help.

regards
Andy b

Thanks for taking a shot at it andy, but I don't see a limited run as being the same as a MOD disc. Twilight Time has a limited run of 3,000 copies of its discs, but no one calls them MOD. I suspect that the Warner Archive has some limit to the number of Blu-rays that they initially press. But I also suspect that WA would re-press a huge seller (even TT did that with "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot"). And in practice, every disc is a "limited run". After Marvel sells the million copies of the AVENGERS that were initially produced, either they order a second pressing or the title goes OOP and the run was limited to a million.
